ENJOY THE BEST BENEFIT OF YOUR SERVICE!
The AFRH provides eligible veterans with supportive care and shared camaraderie. Just like you experienced in your service days. Back then you invested in the AFRH via small payroll deductions. Now it’s time for you to get back what you earned: an affordable, comfortable, and secure retirement.
To live at the AFRH, you must be able to live independently upon admission. This means you must be able to care for your personal needs, attend a dining facility for meals, and keep all medical appointments. You must not have a felony conviction. And you must be free of active drug, alcohol, and psychiatric problems. For those admitted to live independently, AFRH offers three levels of advanced care later on if needed: assisted living, long-term care, and memory support.
AFRH grants admission according to the law that established the Home, and through expanded eligibility outlined in Sec. 1411 (page 643) of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021. Married couples are welcome, but spouses must meet certain eligibility requirements. Please call us at 800.422.9988, Ext. 1, for details.
